Toronto Zine Library
Shameless friend and contributor Suzanne Sutherland has been working with a crew of volunteers to organize the Toronto Zine Library, which finally has a home. The collection of around 300 zines will be housed at the Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Ave.), where volunteers will be on hand to serve as zine librarians on Sundays from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. You can visit the library on other days, too. The library is interested in acquiring more zines and volunteers, so if you’d like to contribute to the collection or join the fun, get in touch: torontozinelibrary at hotmail dot com.
In other zine-related news, Shameless will be at Hotel Canzine, a massive festival of zine and alt culture, at the Gladstone Hotel 1214 Queen St. W) on Sunday, Oct. 29. The fest runs from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m., and we’ll be selling cheap magazines, subscriptions and packages of back issues. Admission is $5 and includes the latest issue of Broken Pencil magazine. See you then!
